|Asher - study for autumn .ep [cnv46] - asher thal-nir|
'Studies for Autumn' was made in the Fall of 2006 and presents itself as one of Asher's more melodic works. It was created from basic workings involving piano, brass bells and field recordings of the seasonal fall winds blowing through the trees. Amidst the static interchanges, we find a prelude to winter long past and, perhaps, a time never forgotten; left somewhere frozen in the dust that memory leaves behind.

Here he is again. Phil Baker rocks. A new EP from the groovemaster from the States. On this release you find 3 tracks. The first Shagga is reggae-influenced, The second Morning Train is a very monotone dark minimal track. Imaging sitting in the last metro to the Bronx after a mindblowing party. The last one is Stacker is a skizofrenic almost off-melodic track made on a misty confusing day.

|Wäldchengarten - Uncomfortable Positions [Fukk God 035]|
I'm trying to think of another word then sinister to describe this noise ambient piece by Denmarks Wäldchengarten, but it seems impossible to find any other way to explain it. Layers of drones, scrap metal, feedback and possibly even guitars meld together into a massive wall of noise terror. Maybe not abrassive, but sure as hell very uncomfortable. What better way to start the fall then to take a plunge into the oozing slime pit of Wäldchengarten?

The basic idea for "unison" is the phenomenon of binaural tones. When the distance between congruence frequencies is changed, pulsations occur. Here, Dutch artist Christian Toonk (vinculated to the Utrecht based collective Umatic among others projects) uses a self build instrument based on sinewave oscillators and feedback loops. The output is rewired to the input and provides a somewhat unpredictable datastream, by means of creating an opponent to interact to as in collaboration...
